Mad River Fly Fishing Report

Caught this fish (pictured right) on the Mad River. Seeing about 30 steelhead hooked this month, averaging about 3 hook ups a day eel system. This river you have to decide to fish upon week or less notice. It doesn’t need to rain much to Dirty. These fish are up to twenty pounds. Average fish is 8 to 10 pounds. With fish 20 pounds +. This river runs along the avenue of the giants a famous scenic highway. I wonder if they named for the steelhead or the giant redwood trees it goes through. Just a odd coincidence I guess. Fishing into March is good on this river.

Trinity River Fly Fishing Report

Trinity River still fishing fair. The system should last into March. Average steelhead 4 to 6 pounds with a occasional 10  + Pounder.  This river will stay in shape while others blow out. Weather pattern is turning to a wetter pattern that should keep fishing coming up the Trinity.

Sacramento River Fly Fishing Report

Sacramento River is fishing awesome. We are catching these fish under indicators. Black Caddis , pmd patterns, stone patterns, egg patterns: drys are great 2. Having up to 5 hours of drys caddies and pmd patterns. Spey swinging is also working well with small leech patterns . This river will also not dirty as easy in storms due to dam control.
